Off Menu and New Menu at Lux Steakhouse

Duck with arugula
The humans went to Lux Steakhouse tonight to use one of their Groupons they had bought.  As always, the food was delicious, complemented by an amazing front of house staff.

Near the end, after the humans were already stuffed full having devoured a baked camembert, salmon with orzo, and an 8 oz steak (eek!) with a lobster tail rivaling the size of the steak (eek!), sous chef Eric brought out some off menu items executive chef Tony Le had created for us to try.

Beguiling boar bacon tamale
First a roll of duck with arugula was light and refreshing, though the wrapper was a bit chewy for the human's liking.

Next a boar bacon tamale with salsa. The smokiness of the boar bacon perfectly complemented the fresh corn in the tamale. This was a dish that the male human thought about long after it was consumed. A definite winner and although significantly different than their other menu items, would make a perfect appetizer on their new menu going live on Monday.

Heavenly chocolate decadence cake

Lastly, the heavenly new chocolate decadence cake that will be appearing on their new menu starting on Monday! Soft, light, not too sweet, and rich, this is the perfect dessert for sharing.

Thanks to sous chef Eric and executive chef Tony Le for experimenting on us and for giving us an unexpected sneak preview of your new menu. You always make your guests feel special! We look forward to visiting again and tasting the other new menu items you've created!
